Quicktime issues with FCP reference files
on Jun 4, 2014 at 5:28:47 pm

So I recently upgraded my OS to Mt. Lion. I have Quicktime 10.2 and I am unable to play Non Self-Contained quicktime files in Quicktime X. The audio plays but the video is black.

The finder plays it fine and compressor and Streamclip will convert it. But quicktime just does not see the video in reference files.

I'm unsure if IT upgraded my Quicktime during the process of upgrading my OS. I have seen issues online about Quicktime X not recognizing codecs - but has anyone heard of this issue?

QT reference files are really an accident waiting to happen anyway. Change one little thing on the underlying timeline and they become worthless. I have always users NOT to get in the habit of using them, because they aren't labeled by default as reference files, and so they can bite you later if you think you have an exported copy of a project.
